Help Us Pressure Congress!

This week, as we conclude the Summer for Progress, Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) is organizing within a huge coalition for the People’s Platform—8 bills we’re urging all Democratic Representatives to cosponsor. One of the bills, Sen. Bernie Sanders’ and Rep. Pramila Jayapal’s College for All Act, would help millions of families afford college, benefiting the United States by ensuring that access to college is based on merit—rather than barred by exorbitant costs. We need your help now to gain support for the People’s Platform! Young people shouldn’t face crippling debt for pursuing an education.

Call 844-266-4612 and tell your Representative to cosponsor H.R. 1880.

We Need To Pressure Congress This Week

PDA endorsed and worked to help elect Rep. Jayapal to Congress because we believed in her ability to lead and legislate. As the Representative for Washington’s 7th congressional district, she’s exceeded our lofty expectations. Not only has she joined the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC), but her colleagues elected her First Vice Chair of the caucus. On top of that, she’s gone to work legislating for progress—sponsoring and cosponsoring the People’s Platform! Tuition-free college is the norm in other modern nations. It’s time for us to join them.

Call 844-266-4612 and tell your Representative to cosponsor Rep. Pramila Jayapal’s College for All Act (H.R.1880). Click here to see if your Representative has already cosponsored the bill.

We can’t do a thing without your help! Please click here to donate $20.18 / month or click here to donate another amount monthly to help PDA elect progressives like Rep. Jayapal to Congress in 2018. Your regular automatic donation helps us plan and budget most effectively. Click here to make a one-time donation. We gratefully accept any donation you can afford to make.

We need the College for All Act. It would let students attend community college for free, and eliminate tuition and fees at four-year public colleges and universities for students whose families earn less than $125,000 a year. That would help about fourth fifths of Americans. The legislation would also cut student loan interest rates in half, and let students refinance their loans whenever interest rates drop.

We need your help to make the case for the College for All Act and the seven other planks of the People’s Platform. Pitch in $500, $50, or whatever you can right now to help support our mobilizing for a Progressive Congressional majority.

In Solidarity,
